I’ve seen youtube videos of people testing their top hats without hooking them up to a bag/filter. I couldn’t see any dust leaving the impeller discharge. I’ve also seen them demo the separator and show that there isn’t much dust in the bag but I can’t find any information that shows how much is going into the wynn filter. I cleaned my wynn filter today and couldn’t believe how much dust it had in it (I don’t have the top hat connected yet)
Has anyone used the thein separator and discharged from the impeller to the atmosphere? In other words, if the separator works so well, do you need the filter and bag? I’m planning on putting my separator on the side of my house and It would be easier if I didnt have to put the bag and filter on it but I don’t know how much dust it will generate over time.
Lastly, has anyone had good or bad experience with changing the orientation of the motor and impeller? Right now the motor is mounted horizontally and I want to mount it vertically. If it doesn’t have some type of thrust bearings then it will fail prematurely.
